Socktastic Summer & Monster Mania 2 - July

I am really LOVING my yarn clubs!!! Both of them are from Dancing Dog Dyeworks. This is the second month for Socktastic Summer and the first month for Monster Mania 2.

This month's sock yarn is Jive Sock which is 80% SW merino, 10% cashmere, and 10% nylon, and let me tell you, it's super soft! The colorway is Hocus Pocus, and while I'm not a huge fan of pinks and purples, you should have heard the "Squee" that came out of my daughter when I took it out of the package! So, needless to say, I am going to make something special for her out of it.

Monster Mania 2 on the other hand is right up my ally! This months colorway Monster In My Kitchen/Fruit Salad has me SO excited! It is so bright and colorful, and really looks like a big bowl of chopped up fruit. I'm a big lover of worsted weight yarn, and with Waltz Worsted being 100% superwash merino, it's my all time favorite! I'd use it and nothing else if I could.

I can honestly say that my pics do NOT do the colors of the yarn justice! The colors are so vibrant and beautiful! No other yarn company or dyer has been able to capture colors the way DDD has. Now I can't wait to see what next month brings!
